newest addition ...

While we were out east last week, I was visiting with my father-in-law at the dinner table and I mentioned my new love for old Polaroid cameras. "Really ?!" he shouts. Off he runs, out to the garage, only to return with this beautiful piece of equipment:


It's a Land Camera 210, made between 1967 - 1969. He used it while in the Vietnam War. Everything was in fantastic condition - the bulbs were still intact, the flash unit was hardy used and the black leather case was mint. "You really want this thing ?" he asked. My ear-to-ear smile answered that. I was overjoyed at his gracious offer. So another addition to my Polaroid camera collection...thanks Pop !!
